Kurt Hentschlager


Halle am Berghain, Berlin


January/February 2017

Immerse yourself in an abysmal and magnificent nothing in which there is no sense of time. A radical minimalism, generated by sensory deprivation, sublimely takes visitors into physically tangible border areas along subjective and objective reality.

After the live performance FEED (2005/06) from the installation ZEE (2008), SOL is Kurt Hentschläger's third phenomenological work that revolves around human perception and its psychology as well as the longing for sublime, emotional experiences. She celebrates the non-moment, the loss of control and the shift in perception, being thrown back on oneself, the hic et nunc.

SOL will premiere on January 27, 2017 as part of the CTM Festival at Halle am Berghain, Berlin. The exhibition is curated by Isabelle Meiffert. After that, SOL will e.g. shown at OK Linz/Austria and at the Recombinant Festival, San Francisco/USA.
The first monographic publication Splendid Voids on the work of Kurt Hentschläger will be published for the premiere of SOL. It contains a text by the art critic Roger Denson, is designed by Detlev Pusch and edited by Isabelle Meiffert.
